Today, we play two fun games to help us review our shapes and their attributes.
The first game we played was a Quadrilateral Relay. We have been learning about polygons this week. One kind of polygon is a quadrilateral. A quadrilateral is a polygon/shape that has 4 sides. As you can imagine a lot of shapes are quadrilaterals. (square, rectangle, rhombus, trapezoid)
Each team had a pile of polygons in front of them. One at a time, each member of the team would grab a polygon and race down to the end of the hallway, where there were two buckets. They had to put the polygon into the correct bucket, either quadrilateral or NOT quadrilateral. The team to correctly sort all their shapes first won.
We also played a game called Shapes Island. Mrs. Wanke would call out different commands for us to do. If we did them correctly, we could stay in the game. If we were incorrect, we were out of the game.
When Mrs. Wanke called out a shape, we had to get into a group that had the same amount of people in it as the number of sides that made up that shape. (Triangle made a group of 3, Square made a group of 4) There were a couple of silly things Mrs. Wanke would say for us to do. Check out the video to see what those were.
